Step back nonbelievers,
or the rain will never come.
Someone keep that fire burning,
somebody beat the drum.
Some may think I'm crazy,
for making all these claims.
But I swear before this day is over,
you folks are going to see some rain"
Lizzie and the rain man
We I will start at the end lol. We got some rain! Some much needed rain today, and hopefully more over the next few days.
The fires in Alberta are terrible with the worst being Fort Mac Murray.over 80000 people evacuated in the city itself and greater than 1600 dwellings lost. But, no loss of life as a result of the fires.It has been said that there is no other city in the world that would have done the evacuations so well.With so many folks working in the oil and gas industry,probably most are trained in emergency managemnet, WHIMIS,first aid,etc. They handled themselves with grace and composure, helping one another and making sure all got out safely!
The fire continues to burn there and in other area, our continued prayers for all affected,and for the brave first responders who are standing strong.
We had a bit of a scare here a while ago with a wildfire just a few miles away.We did not need to evacuate,but we do have a plan , and I am humbled by the number of calls, messages and texts I received offering housing and transport for my critters!
May has been a whirlwind so far,we celebrated my birthday, then the next week,my Uncles wedding celebration,

A busy month! well that is almost it,only to mention that Harley is sold! He will be going to Katie (the gal that started him) She always liked him ,calling him the smartest colt she ever started! Well it seems that it is just the right time for he and she to get together! Yay! another of my horses going to not only a great home but one where I can keep up with their career!
